HCS debuted 02-09-1973 i believe...Reuban and Cherise was played maybe 3 times in 91...03-17-1991, 03-27-1991, 04-07-1991...vince plays loud and repetitively all over it like a tone deaf retard, which is probably the reason why they stopped doing it...not even close to JGB versions (find 11-05-1993 for a phenomenal performance of this tune...)

Strat,

Here Comes Sunshine ...

I meant the break out .. was it mentioned here, I missed it.

As for the Rubin and Cherise, the break out was fine. Not an easy song to sing. One of Jerry's top 5 creations imo.

Thanks again for bringing all this stuff up.

It was funny I was at that gig and I had to tell about 20 people the name of the song. I'm not in the dead inner circle so this is a guess. Phoenix got hit with a winter rain storm and it was very dark on Saturday. The grounds were also very muddy. It cleared up a bit for the Sunday gig and the sun was peaking out so I think that's when the boys decided to bust it out. They could have saved it for oakland days later but since this was the only outdoor venue on the tour it seemed to make sense I guess.

I was at the Ripple show. Was in the front row, about to leave after the Sat Night encore, when I noticed Jerry was up on stage, and something was playing. It was kind of dark, so I really didn't know what was happening, but it didn't take long.

After the first thirty seconds or so, I stood up on my chair, looked back at the crowd, and witnessed my best Dead scene of all. Every person in the place was either jumping up and down or balling their eyes out.

Pure magic.

Also caught the Casey Jones in DC. Crowd also went wild, and if I remember, they played it well considering the circumstances. Wasn't quite in the front row though. Drinking beer somewhere in the middle of the lawn that day. My last show.

The Box of Rain is the one I would have liked to have seen most though. My friend came back the next day and told me that Phil played something you would never guess in a million years. My response was: "Box of Rain or Unbroken Chain". One of my favorite songs.

Nice list!

A few more....

3/28/90 - The Weight

3/27/85 - Tom Thumbs, Phil's first solo tune since the 70's?(and first half step in a few years)http://www.archive.org/details/gd85-03-27.aud.vernon.7369.sbeok.shnf

2/19/91 - New Speedway

8/27/81 - Cumberland (not since 74)

3/14/90 - Loose Lucy

7/7/84 - Lovelight (in an NFA sandwich!) http://www.archive.org/details/gd84-07-07.ziemba.connor.4861.sbeok.shnf

6/27/84 - Why don't we do it in the road - I don't think Jerry was on stage. http://www.archive.org/details/gd84-06-27.nak-ziemba.connor.6999.sbeok.shnf

7/18/82 - Crazy Fingers (not since '74)

11/2/84 - Gimme some Lovin

8/28/82 - Duprees (hooray) - I probably shouldn't even mention this one. But someone had to be excited about it.

10/12/83 - Revolution

9/25/80 - Bird Song (first since '72, first electic version was also sometime in '80)

9/7/87 - La Bamba (Jerry really rushes it, but it's a fun one) http://www.archive.org/details/gd87-09-07.aud-sonyecm220t.unknown.8596.sbeok.shnf

11/3/84 - Gloria http://www.archive.org/details/gd84-11-03.aud.willy-vernon.18111.sbeok.shnf

3/17/91 - Rueben and Cherise, crowd is definitley suprised http://www.archive.org/details/gd91-03-17.fob-schoeps-metchik.miller.28386.sbeok.shnf

3/31/85 - Day Tripper. Wasn't the first bust out, but was on the east coast. Nice crowd reaction and definitely the best version they played from one of the most high energy shows of '85 http://www.archive.org/details/gd85-03-31.oade.connor.8244.sbeok.shnf

10/31/85 - Werewolves of London (first since '78) Might not have been a big surprise to some. But listening now I think this could be the best opening sequence ever. Space>Werewolves>Music Never Stopped followed by a classic Weir quote "Thank you and good evening music lovers" Who was there? Too bad they couldn't keep the energy going after this opening. http://www.archive.org/details/gd85-10-31.aud-fob.sacks.2249.sbeok.shnf

10/9/84 - Smokestack Lightnin' You can't really hear anything on the SBD, but this is a post from reviewer:
"first set was rocking and this was the first smokestack they actually played in a while - they had teased a bit down in hampton but did not sing the words so when bobby banged out the first few lines the place lost it.... back end of the show not as strong as the first but it did not mattter"

I was at the 3/27/85 Tom Thumbs breakout and it was really something. No one recognized the tune and then couldn't immediately figure the singer. To watch it happen was like to watch a wave move across the audience as we all realized what was going on. The Oade aud here on the archive captures it nicely.

"7/18/82 - Crazy Fingers (not since '74) "

Actually there are several versions from '75 and '76.

I was at the 10/17/83 Revolution, although not the breakout. It was such a fun tune for them to do... The "Ow Shoobee Doo Wah"s were cracking me up. Mostly what I remember about that show were the Phil bombs on Terrapin. Phil made that hockey arena feel like a big bass drum. And I seem to remember that it was snowing after the show but I could be wrong...

and I don't remember the train horn from the '92 Casey Jones show, but it just spooked the shit out of me listening to it now.

this was a nice surprise. very nice break out.

one reviewer writes: "They'd been teasing us with the train horn during space since spring tour" ..

my first show in a while, I missed all that.

How about 9-29-89? The first Death Don't Have No Mercy in over 19 years. Was there any song that was put on hiatus for longer than that, or is this the record?

A reviewer on the site mentioned that there is a shoreline gig in 91 when they bust out CC rider>lot to laugh for Griffin because he recently died. Couldn't tell you which one is correct, however.

I was actually at 3/20/86, 9/3/88, and 10/9/89, and my scrambled fuzzbox of a memory recalls the "Box" breakout as causing the most people to totally freak out. They were all truly beautiful in their own way, but when you combine the fact that Phil had only recently begun singing again (sometime in '85 I think) with the fact that "Box" had been in dry dock for 13 years, it made for one jaw-dropping moment. Since "Box" moved quickly back into fairly regular rotation, it might be hard for those who started attending shows after March of '86 to fully apprciate what a huge, huge deal this breakout was.

Funny thing was, 3/20 was a pretty sloppy show otherwise and 9/3 was nothing to write home about until the "Ripple"- doesn't fit the Hollywoodn script if you're making a movie about these things, but then that's the Dead for you.

skuzzlebutt,

Yeah, as someone who was involved from around '82 to '89 mainly, I would say the Box meant the most. I was up in the stands in Philly for the 2nd (I think), and the crowd had a great reaction as well. Man, the chorus with all the boys singing ..... wow. I just wish I saw the first.

Strat, thanks for the post. Great one.
